    Re: Snobby SA's at Boots etc

    They always magic away fragrances that are not in their selection. Mugler Cologne? Oh yes, that one was discontinued...can I direct you to something similar?

    Re: Mugler Cologne Appreciation Thread :)

    Only bottle of perfume I've ever finished, *and* I bought a replacement!
  3. Re: What fragrance can you not stop smelling (on purpose) when you wear it?

    Chergui and Fiore d' Ambra most recently. Chergui is just too good though!

    Re: tauer pentachords Verdant review

    The initial blast is pretty much unpleasant, I thought, euggh, get away from me!

    It then settles into a barely sweet-ish, camphor, mint, and earth kinda smell. It is however, quite harsh, it...

    Re: What are the top COMFORT scents?

    SL Chergui. A little dab on my wrist and it dried down into a very comforting, vaguely sweet smell. I'm sure it's amazing sprayed!

    Re: I'm looking for a nice fresh Aquatic

    Creed Erolfa! What an amazing dry down on top of the super fresh blast you initially get. Too good.

    Re: Oceanic fragrance recommendations

    Acqua di Sale is oceanic, but not in the same way as Erolfa's idealized kind of breezy niceness. AdS has a bit of smokiness, saltiness, it really does smell like a dockyard with the wind blowing at...

    Re: Voyage d'Hermes in stores !

    So I was at Holt Renfrew today and I tried it, the SA seemed a bit surprised I even knew about it! Apparently they are doing a 'soft launch' at the Yorkdale HR.

    The opening is sharp and somewhat...

    Wow that review on scented salamander is more a tribute to overly considered writing than a fragrance review!

    Re: Do not buy Creed from FragranceNet

    But what's the other option? Drop $300 on a 100ml bottle at holt renfrew? The regular Creeds just aren't worth their retail price! I was going to buy Erolfa from fragrancex, who seem to be even more...
  11. Re: Which is your favourite AXE ? (Warning: cheap fragrances !!!)

    My favourite is Axe Tsunami, the antiperspirant one. It just smelled great! Sadly it stopped showing up in stores a few years ago and I haven't seen it since.

    I'm a big fan of the Snake Peel body...

    Re: Dab Vial Samples and atomizers.

    I found that using the sprayer to decant a vial into the atomizer just ends up covering the vicinity with a fine mist of the sample you're trying to decant, wasting half of it in the process!

    Re: Workhorse Niche (not creed)

    Profumum's Ichnusa is a green, clean scent that lasts a quite a while, and I can see working great in the summer, though I've only tried it in the winter. After a couple of hours it reminds me of...
  14. Re: What fragrance did you wear to work the most in January?

    Either L'Eau Bleue D'Issey or Terre D'Hermes. I tried Silver Mountain Water the other day, I find one spray is fine but two is just too much and even I find it distracting.

    I'm waiting for the...

    Poll: Re: TdH EdT vs Parfum: Which is more synthetic?

    I would say the EdT is more synthetic, only because people have told me that it has a nose-crinkily quality about it, and though I don't find it annoying, I can see how others can. Maybe the Iso E...

    Re: Creed Summer Scent

    For me Erolfa is #1, but for the summery vibe VIW can't be beat. Smell it in winter, when it's dark and cold outside, and you can remember summer days. SMW is nice but black currant & tea is all I...
  18. Re: Where's the longevity in the current Obsession for Men?

    I have a mini of what can only be the new version, and it lasts at least 24 hours on my skin. The drydown smells really good, and what is left after a day is pleasing and very close-to-the-skin.
